The Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program hosts a webinar series entitled "Sequencing Strategies for Population and Cancer Epidemiology Studies (SeqSPACE)." The purpose of this forum is to provide an opportunity for our grantees and other interested individuals to share lessons learned and practical information regarding the application of next generation sequencing to cancer epidemiology studies.
By sharing lessons learned across funded projects, EGRP aims to facilitate higher quality research and more interpretable genetic research studies for the future. In addition, the webinar participants may work together to establish best practices for epidemiology research.
Any interested individual is invited to participate, however pre-registration is required. Each presentation will be about 30 minutes in length and allow for 30 minutes of discussion. Instructions for connecting to the webinars will be sent via e-mail to individuals who register for the webinars.
